I am the living proof that the “Pregnancy Brain” phenomenon is real. For me, it came in the form of loosing something everyday.
Why am I telling you this? When I was 3 months pregnant, I was meeting Maria Stanley, designer of the LA-based brand Harlyn Label.
We had a nice discussion, about the universe of the brand and its inspirations. A few days later, I was flying to Paris, and on this day I lost all my notes and the pictures I had taken, and my article about Harlyn Label was never written.
Well, six months later, it is high time to introduce you the brand!
I spotted the brand during the “Designer and the Muse” Los Angeles event, which gathers Californian fashion designers, every year.
Remember, it was my first time walking on a red carpet since I had arrived in LA, I was so proud!! (but it was before I learned that any opening in LA comes with a red carpet…)
Anyway, Harlyn Label won this day the award of the best emergent talent, which was very deserved, and made me look at the brand a little bit closer.
That’s how I met Maria, in Harlyn Label’s headquarters.
What’s striking is that Maria looks exactly like her creations: cute like a babe, but seductive like a woman.
Her collections are very inspired by the 60’s, with super short dresses, original prints, flashy colors and retro cuts.
Harlyn masters in twisting the very prim and proper style into a feminine, comfortable and effortless chic silhouette…which reminds you what?
French style of course! And indeed, the Fall collection is very inspired by French fashion, with three key words: simplicity, taste, and elegance.
Another reason for me to love the brand: one of their signature piece is the jumpsuit (my favorite!):
I can’t wait to go back to LA in January to see their new collections, because unfortunately, Harlyn is not in France yet.
